Made For Me...

Hi Everybody,

Usually I show you cards that I have made but this one is an exception as this is a card that was made for me.

Let me tell you the story ...

When I started Card Making Magic four years ago one of the options was for me to add a Gallery  and ask people to add their designs to the page.

That way they could showcase  their own designs and so create a page for themselves on my website that they could add to as they made more cards.

I was understandably nervous about this process .... Why would anybody want to add cards to my website in the first place ? Would anybody take advantage  and  create their own page ?Would they want to show off what they can do ?

But within hours of that invitation going live I had my first submission.

It was from a lady in Ireland who told me her name was Cepta and she added her project which was the Ordination of a Catholic Priest.

From that first submission we have grown an online friendship that continues to this day.  So over the Easter break Cepta made this very pretty blue card for me. It has been decoupaged with fabric flowers at the bottom and it has a lovely verse written inside.

And I thought that you would like to see what she made  and although Easter is now finished the card still sits on top of my cabinet and I will add it to my treasures box later.  Thank you Cepta for a beautiful card.

Hugs xx
